The top graduates of every law class are recruited by prominent law firms. The lesser qualified graduates are forced to go into business for themselves; yet, charge the same rate for services as their more competent, prestigious counterparts. Small, private, law schools have many graduates that cannot even pass the state bar tests. Consequently, beware of attorneys that have attended these small, private, law schools. Because they cannot succeed in private practice, this is, typically, where government attorneys, judges and lawmakers originate.
Never pay an attorney in advance. A starter payment, equivalent to eight hours, is enough. You may want to fire him/her, and you will get either nothing or very little back. When an attorney wants to be paid in advance and/or wants a payment agreement signed, go elsewhere. These attorneys are signaling to you by these actions that they get fired frequently.
Incompetent attorneys are very common. Some state bar examinations have very low testing standards. Ethical standards of some state bar associations are deplorable.
Someday, hopefully, on behalf of all clients who have been defrauded by incompetent and unethical attorneys, a class action, criminal conspiracy civil tort lawsuit will be filed under the RICO Act of 1970 (RACKETEER INFLUENCED AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS ACT) against all of the officers, directors and members of some state bar associations.
Not being chartered under the ordinary commercial business statutes, which require capital stock and tangible assets, members or officers of nonprofit corporations cannot claim the same limited financial liability protection that stockholders in for profit, domestic corporations can claim for the financial liabilities, slanderous or illegal acts of such domestic corporations. Instead, each member, officer, director, trustee and agent is individually financially liable for the financial liabilities incurred, torts committed and damages caused by the corporate entity, their managers and agents through the neglect of the members and officers to properly supervise their activities.
The most forceful analogy of this is the “Danbury Hatters’ case”, because it was carried to the United States Supreme Court; and, hence, is affirmed by our highest authority.
The suit was instituted not against the Hatters’
In this particular case, many of the members of the defendant organization were unable to pay their share of the judgment rendered. Therefore, in several instances, the homes and life savings were taken from them to satisfy the judgment.
Under this decision, each and every member of a nonprofit corporation is liable for any judgment obtained by any individual or business against the organization.
